WARSAW, June 24 (Xinhua) -- This year 31 percent of Poles plan to travel during the summer holidays, according to the latest survey by the Ipsos research institute.
People under 40 and families with one or two children are the largest group of those planning their holidays, the survey shows, whereas people with more children plan a holiday trip less often.
This is probably due to financial limitations, as suggested by the fact that when per capita income was below average, only one-sixth of those polled said they planned a holiday.
When income was above average, holiday plans were made by three times more people (46 percent), though this was still the minority, Ipsos commented.
The poll showed that 79 percent of those who planned to go away chose a holiday of at least five days, 19 percent said they would go away for a shorter time but with an overnight stay, while 4 percent chose a one-day trip.
Holidays abroad are fairly popular, with 29 percent of tourists deciding to spend their holiday outside Poland. This grows to 55 percent in the highest income group (over 150 percent of the average family income).
The survey was carried out from January 29 to February 6, 2014 on a representative sample of 1,000 Poles aged 15 and over.
